about

It contains a little lyrical tribute to one of my favorite songwriters - I will leave that a mystery, though.

lyrics

a lot of things can happen
in 30 years
none of it unhappens
and it really caught me napping
I have been away too long
it would appear
the town still has its name
oh, but nothing seems the same

where the weeds grow through the cracks
and the stones do not remember me
I guess you can't go back
because home's not what it used to be

it's all to be expected
I suppose
you take a look around
all the old stuff looks worn down
and the much more tattered flags still flap
when the wind blows
and the new stuff isn't new
it's just the best that they can't do

where the weeds grow through the cracks
and the stones do not remember me
I guess you can't go back
because home's not what it used to be

entropy's remorseless
from your eyes to your divorces
we start falling apart
on the day that we're born
that's the way it's gotta be

where the weeds grow through the cracks
and the stones have all forgotten me
and you never can go back
because home's not what it used to be
